I Feel n think its better to come as one down instead of Opener like he did in World Cup 2011 Final it may releases unnecessary pressure when he is in out of Form So Better Kallis and Lynn to Open Gambhir shud come as 1 Down :)

These "experts" are blind or what? You just can't ignore three ducks in a row in any format. In any tournament, particularly in a competitive tournament like this one. Had GG been doing very well before the IPL-7 started; then also one could have "attempted" to downplay his struggles with the bat in this IPL. That is not the case.

\In fact after Gambhir, Veeru,and Harbhajan were dropped from the team, none of the three had shown any great form for any reasonable time-frame, across any or all formats and tournaments to justify a re-look. In fact, there are many far younger players crying out loud to get the selectors attention.

If these guys want, they will say IPL is a yardstick for t20 or odi selection to team India.. If not, they will say that it doesn't matter.. Gambhir, with three golden ducks so far, appears less qualified to even feature for his state team at the moment..
